The proclamation of the governor of
Missouri, together with tbj prayers
and fas.ing of the inhabitants of th it
afiiide 1 state, is haing a wonderful
effect upon the grasshopper, and since
that day of public supplication and
humiliation they have been leaving
that commonwealth on the wiugs of
the wind; -and they are still going like
arwtnalswho are granted a certain
limited time in which to get out o the
country. Since the first settlement of
fiber banks of the Missouri, and since
the grasshopper was first understood,
or rather misunderstood, we halve been
trying experiments on him. It has
been; denottraeJ Ant if administer
ed in proper quantities kerosene oil
will kill him, and so- likewise will
strychnine, but as this ofetiaate in
sect utterly refuses to take that kind
of medicine, the knowledge ie-MMbrea
valueless. It has also been clearly
proved that in some grasshopper eoni
bi unities parasites abound ; but from
the evidence so far adduced we are
jpstified in saying that this state of
things is far from being universal, and
that no grasshopper of respectability,

Cheyenne is situated on the line of
the Uuion Pacific K. IV, 516 miles
west of Omaha, it is the terminus of
the Kansas Pacific R. It., it is a City
of about 3,000 population, and has
many fine buildings, both public and
private. Amone these may be men

Methodist, Congregational, Episcopal,
and Roman Catholic
There is an excellent public graded
school here, which in every particular
is equal to any graded school in the
east. The school building is a fine
two stories brick, 30x50 feet, and cost
about $13,000. The court house is a
neat brick structure, two stories high,
with a Man.-ard roof. Tho countyjail
and Sheriff's residence are locate iu
the rear of the court house, and are
connected with it. There is several
fine brick blocks in Cheyenne, and a
very fine two story city hall, built of
brick. There is two banking houses,
oue National Bank, and the other is a
private banking house. I brie are
hotels in good running order, of which
'f tot i)yer's takes the lead. There are
three new brick hotels being built here
this season, tacT largest b called the
Ford House ; the job of building it
was let for $25,000, it is to be comple

The couutry around Cheyenne is a
rolling prairie j the grass is very short
in this vicinity and but a very little of
it, yet the stock looks well, and have
had to pick their own living all winter.
The ranchmen brag this up as a great
stock growing couutry, but in my
opinion it "can't hold a candle" to the
Republican valley, of your State.
The grasshoppers are very thick
here. They are' small yet but are
growing larger very fast. I don't see
as they can hurt this part of the ter
ritory any way, for it is no farming
country. There is a beautiful stream
called Crow Creek, which heads in the'
Black Hills, south of the North Platte
and flows through the western part of
the city of Cheyenne ; on this stream
north of this city one mile and a half
is situated Camp Carlin, where the
military and subsistence stores are
kept. Fort A. D. Russell, one of the
largest military posts in the United
States is located one mile and a half
aorth of Omp Carlin, or three miles
aorth of Cheycaae. One mile north
ward of Cheyenne is a beautiful artifi
cial lake, filled with splendid fish. This
r lake-wnen full is about three miles in
circumference. It was made by bring
ing the water from. row Creek
through, a ditch about six miles which,
empties into a natural basin. There
is also another lake of the same kind
within the city limits in the east part
of town, and is about the same size of
the one north of the city, and is called
Minnie ha ha. It is filled with the
surplus water from thu other lake.
